VirtualBox.Failed to create COM-object VirtualBoxClient


I installed VirtualBox 5.0.12 and Genymotion on my PC with Ubuntu 14.0.4. Virtual box ran once, then i created virtual machine and closed VB and when i decided to run VB once more - i got such message:"Failed to create COM-object VirtualBoxClient. The application will now terminate" and CalleRC: NS_ERROR_FACTORY_NOT_REGISTERED (0x80040154).

Then i started looking for solution and it seemed that i had found it: I should delete /tmp/.vbox-$USER-ipc/ . But i could not find it in folder tmp.
Also this article http://man-linux.ru/notes/virtualbox-issue-solv/ is seemed to be useful but it does not work on my PC as well.
Maybe someone know how to solve this problem?

I'd run
Code:
sudo find / -type f -name .vbox*
just to have the system take a closer look for you.

WCS: how much time to figure out and fix it VS how long it takes to just remove VB reinstalled it and load the OS again?

quick fix?
